Layers of Blue

This small living room was enhanced by covering the walls, trim and ceiling in various shades of powder blue tones.

Pretty Backdrop

With its black-and-white stripes, the nightstand steals the scene in this soft, powder-blue bedroom. This modern piece proves that powder blue can provide the perfect backdrop to virtually any color combo.

Light and Bright

Powder-blue walls provide a soft backdrop in this transitional dining room. A vintage Sputnik glass chandelier hangs above the dining table with a mix of bench seating, simple orange chairs and neutral slipcovered armchairs.

Cool Blues

Cool blue tones flow from the artwork above the mantle, inspiring this laid-back palette.

Clean and Serene

Powder blue, brown and gray wash over this serene bedroom, creating a fresh, clean and neutral palette. To add dimension, the designers layered in different fabrics on the bed and window treatments.

Dreamy Americana

By layering indigo and powder blue, a unique mix of patterns and classic style, this guest bedroom puts a cool, casual spin on Americana.

Swimming in Blue

David Hockney's 1978 artwork "Swimming Pool With Reflection" inspired this California-cool bathroom. Watery-blue glass mosaic tile spills down the shower wall and out onto the concrete-gray tile floor, appearing to puddle. The custom back-painted glass vanity floats on the powder-blue walls and is anchored by a chrome faucet, adding a modern sophistication to this fun space.

Glam Lounge

Graphic, powder-blue wallpaper is framed in silver for a glamorous backdrop to this seating area. A custom round settee with mother-of-pearl buttons adds elegance, while a large botanical print adds a contemporary feminine touch.

Romantic Style

A simple palette of powder blue and white with small, romantic details like the herringbone throw and vase of white roses makes this master bedroom feel relaxing and inviting.

Luxe Spa

A transom window draws the eye up toward the vaulted ceiling detail in this luxurious master bathroom. Marble tiling is used on both the floor and backsplash for a cohesive look, and soft blue tones evoke the view of the ocean and sky outside.

Sweet Baby

Soothing powder-blue walls and a soft sheepskin rug create a calm space for a new baby. Graphic blue-and-white storage bins on the floor are an attractive and handy place to stash toys, diapers and books.

Cottage Accents

A soaking tub adds a contemporary touch to this powder-blue cottage bathroom. Plaid curtains, an antique wood stool and a painted lantern-style pendant light bring a homier feel to the space.

Eclectic Palette

Powder blue and fire-engine red create a show-stopping color palette in this spacious eclectic master bathroom. Elegant patterns and textures create a luxurious feel topped off with a relaxing, spa-style bathtub.
